Processes of scaffold repair
We provide a full spectrum of scaffold repair and reconditioning services including; shot blasting and painting alongside scaffold testing and verification.
Our dedicated scaffolding repair facility is operated by industry experts, experienced in common defects and flaws associated with common and popular types of scaffolding, such as; Cuplock, Kwikstage and Ringlock.
As scaffold repair specialists we have the ability and experience to cost effectively, restore your scaffolding stock back to a fit for working condition, in accordance with ISO 9001:2015 legislation and safety regulations.
Before any inspection or repair of scaffolding, components or fittings can take place, blast cleaning is the first priority to ensure sufficient cleanliness – exposing any defects or damage.
Blast cleaning processes are conducted using a traditional 4 wheel shot blasting machine, other smaller components are processed through a barrel shot blasting machine which carefully erodes all
surface paint and debris.
This process is highly powered, fully automatic, fast and efficient – greatly reducing cleaning costs in comparison to other cleaning methods.
Once the blast cleaning process is complete and all defects can be easily identified, scaffolding is then stringently inspected for flaws, defects, damage, rust and rot.
Following this process our internal quality assurance procedures are then conducted.
Our skilled and knowledgeable fabricators conduct the necessary repairs to any defected, damaged and corroded scaffolding, components or scaffold fittings.
Once all equipment has been restored back to a fit for purpose working condition, their then passed onto the next process for an anti-corrosive coating to be applied.
Incorporated within our manufacturing and reconditioning center is our scaffold shot blasting & painting division.
Our finishing team has just as much immense attention to detail, backed by some of the latest technologies available – to ensure all scaffolding, fittings or components are finished to the highest possible standard, with the same level of longevity and robustness as that of newly manufactured, factory-fresh scaffolding.
During this process scaffolding and scaffold components are painted by following a fully dipped procedure or, conventionally sprayed with a recognizable, durable protective paint. A wide variety of colours are available to allow personalization of your equipment in your own corporate company colours. Providing easy identification within construction sites and projects.
